The Atlanta Hawks were rewarded with three All-Star reserves Thursday night as Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and Al Horford were named to the Eastern Conference squad. With Dwyane Wade injured and expected to miss 2-3 weeks, that could open the door for Kyle Korver to be named to the team as an injury replacement.

There was some discussion as to whether or not Korver would make the team out right. He's enjoying one of the best shooting seasons of all time and has been a key contributor on a Hawks team that is currently 38-8 and leading the Eastern Conference by seven games. Korver will be in New York to participate in the three-point shootout on All-Star Saturday night.

The decision on injury replacements will be made by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
